NEW JERSEY (OCN) — An East Orange, NJ cat owner will be marching into court soon. The suit, suing for violating her pet cat’s right to privacy.
Pauline Amandy, 45, says that Fixing Furry Friends in Newark, NJ was to give her cat a flea bath while she went to work in Manhattan. Amandy noticed that when she went to pickup her precious Snowball after work, a weird sound was coming from Snowball’s cage.
“I was startled” says Amandy. “I didn’t know what it was.” Later, Amandy discovered the sound was coming from a cat litter box located inside the cage. The litter box had a feature that when a feline entered and left, it would filter the sand automatically removing any urine and feces to keep it clean.
“It’s spying on my cat” says Amandy in a recent interview at her home. “He [Snowball] should not have to put up with that.”
Snowball is said to be a shy cat and the liter box at Fixing Furry Friends could scar him from using a litter box in the future. It took weeks to get Snowball trained so now Amandy fears that Snowball will take once again to her sofa and carpet.
The Amandy’s are suing for pain and suffering and an undisclosed amount in damages.
